ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

This profile thing seems to be a work in progress. How do you cover who I am in a few paragraphs? I just tried to cover enough that you get an idea of who I am.

I suppose I’ll start with the things that haven’t changed. I’m not the guy with 150 friends, but the friends I have could call me for anything…just ask them. In my free time I like to cook (enough that I took a croissant class in Paris), trying new restaurants, going to concerts, hikes, kayaking, and whatever else is my flavor of the week. I can fix things around the house and change my own oil, but I’m not spending my Sunday watching the NFL or nights out playing poker with the guys.

I did grow up in the South, so telling you that my mom raised me right is probably understood. She raised me to believe that women aren't just equal they are more than equal. To her that meant a man still opens the door, pulls out your chair, and yet treats you as an intellectual equal.

So what’s different about me? I did a solo trip to Paris for two weeks back in April and I feel like learned what the city is about. Would I go back? In a heartbeat, you’ll never be “done” with Paris. Last January I took up the Irish sports of hurling and Gaelic football and they’re a work in progress. I will try to keep the talk about them to a minimum.

So who am I looking for? I’m looking for that person I will admire and will be my best friend. Someone who is kind, sure of herself, loves dogs, financially responsible, can make me laugh, and is passionate about what she does. I want someone who will call me out when I’m wrong and knows when to drop it after I admit I’m wrong (yes, I do know how to say it when I’m wrong). Hopefully you can also put up with me occasionally saying, “I heard something interesting on NPR today…” Yes, I’m one of those “damn liberals.”

I’m the type of person that can take some time to warm up to you. Give it time. Once it clicks you will see the reserved guy melt away and my quirky and at times offbeat sense of humor comes out. I love a serious intellectual conversation, but I also like saying those things that will hopefully induce the famous “spit-take”.

An additional note that may be important: Clearly I need to come right out and say the following. I tend to respond to emails quickly unless I’m actually busy. I see no reason to sit on something for a day or two for the sole purpose of not wanting to look desperate. Remember, I’m a guy and we’re not evolved enough to think through that construct. I also see no reason to waste anyone’s time. My time is precious and I trust that yours is too. I think many of us look at this as one of the most important interviews we’re going to be doing. I don’t sit on things in my professional life and I see no reason to start here. You are not going to find a mysterious and aloof guy with me. Take any enthusiasm and long emails for what they are. It’s genuine interest nothing more.

For fun:

I love a good museum, camping, hiking, kayaking, cooking, concerts (small venues), drinks on the deck, working on the house, casual bike rides, indoor rock climbing, and whatever else I can think of.

Favorite hot spots:

I love going to see music, so locally the Cat's Cradle, Lincoln Theatre, or the Berkeley Cafe. Restaurants - anything from Mami Nora's to St. Jacques to Neomonde. Some of my favorite destinations - Puerto Rico, Ireland, Paris, and always Charleston.

Favorite things:

I have broad music tastes - early Miles Davis, Eileen Jewell, and the Old 97's. I love a great glass of wine or beer, Latin American food, mornings in the mountains, the satisfaction of a well cooked meal, and walking at night through old cities.

Last read:

I just finished the Billionaire's Vinegar (apparently the very wealthy love drinking fake wines). I'm currently reading The Big Short, which is about the Wall Street meltdown.
